Building Performance Consulting offers Georgia Energy Code Testing for builders and developers throughout the Atlanta metro region, including duct and building envelope testing.
What is the Georgia Energy Code?
The Georgia building energy code, effective as of January, 2011, is the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) along with Georgia State Supplements and Amendments. The energy code is designed to reduce energy costs and improve health, safety, energy efficiency and durability.
Building Envelope & Duct Testing
The Georgia Energy Code requires building envelope testing as well as duct testing, using equipment such as a blower door and duct tester. Also known as the DET (for Duct, Envelope and Test), code testing is done at project completion. The duct test can be done after HVAC rough-in on projects where ducts will be concealed behind walls and ceilings making later repairs more difficult.
